On Sept. 29, a 46-year-old defendant appeared before Baltimore City Court Judge Melissa M. Phinn to schedule a new trial date.

Keisha Clark is charged with attempted first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, attempted armed robbery, attempted robbery, theft of less than $100, use of a handgun in committing a crime, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first- and second-degree assault, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and robbery, conspiracy to commit theft less than $100 and conspiracy to use a firearm in a felony violent crime in connection to a May 5, 2021, incident.

The prosecutor could not try Clark today because she was out sick. She has missed a week of court, pushing back Clark’s codefendant, Tyrelle Fields’ trial as well.

Clark and her attorney, Andre Mahasa, will appear for her new trial date of Jan. 2, 2024. 

According to Baltimore Witness, Clark and Fields, 39, are accused of devising a plan for Fields to shoot Clark’s ex-boyfriend on the 700 block of N. Paca Street. The victim was shot in his arm and leg.
